Delicious coffee as well as a full menu of cafe foods. The breakfast burrito was great. Reasonable prices. The staff is friendly and the food was delivered quickly. Inside seating for 30 or so. Nice coffee cafe vibe. I'm stopping here again!

Cafe Solstice is a cute coffee shop which welcomes guest to plop down and plug in their laptops while sipping coffee. They also serve alcohol so you can opt for a mimosa instead of java to start your day. The food options, while appealing on...More
